    Wow it’s been awhile since I logged in. So much has happened since. Just ordered my copies. Can’t wait to read it. Still have to read the previous book first. Ha. Ha. I’ve been slacking big time. Well I hope I didn’t miss much because I have alot to catch up on.

    Random idea about how to handle the server load when launching.

    This might be a bit more up front work, but it is the fairest idea I have for solving the issue.

    The problem: Everyone is hitting the server and refreshing to get in for a low number. Not every clock is set the same. Some fast, some slow, which adds to the “refresh load,” for lack of a better word.

    Aside: Hitting me as I write, a countdown timer widget might alleviate some of that, with a “don’t refresh till it hits zero or n Ancestor will eat you message.” Some, but not all. A thousand Junkies all hitting refresh when the timer hits zero has the same result.

    My crazy idea would be to have a lottery for the first xyz minutes after the sales go live. My thought was the first hour to spread that load out.

    After the lottery time is over, numbering continues based on time stamp.

    I think this is the fairest way to proceed without overwhelming servers in the first minutes when it opens.

    Get inside that time slot and you could get #2 or #2000, same odds for everyone in that time slot.

    It potentially reduces server impact by spreading out sales to the first hour instead of the first minute, but does increase your workload a bit

    Good day to all the Junkies

    I snagged 2 copies, so they’ll take pride of place on my Sigler shelf in Bonnie Scotland.
    Cheers, and I’m looking forward to it.

    Great work, Scott and A.

    Kind Regards and Stay Alive

    Hopefully the email time stamp works. Took me 10 minutes to get into the order page. Oh well. I got mine and that makes it a good Sigler Ascension Day.

      Sorry, sir. We spent the big $ with WP Engine to get a dedicated server for today, the same setup used by the freaking Country Music Awards. We still crashed it.

            Hard to tell right now. What we said at pre-order was that the latest we’d ship the book was April 1st of 2020. Could be earlier, we’d love that too, but mostly we just don’t know right now. So, right now it’s neither likely nor overly exaggerated.
